Tasting Notes and Scores
Has Dauzac ever made a wine this good? Deep ruby/purple, with notes of graphite and black currants followed by some spicy oak and licorice in a creamy, plump succulent texture that almost reminds me of a Right Bank wine, this 2009 is full-throttle, dense and super-concentrated. It is an amazing Dauzac. Drink it over the next 25 years.

Tasted at the vertical retrospective at the property. The 2009 Château Dauzac, a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot, has a powerful bouquet with blackcurrant pastille, blueberry, violet and fine mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite savoury in style, bestowed with more assertive tannin than the 2010, albeit without quite the same level of finesse. Nevertheless, this is an impressive Dauzac that is brimming with vitality and its more corpulent nature will win many fans - including myself. Give it 3-4 years in bottle to get the most from this Margaux. Tasted June 2015.
